New Eagle Scout Required Merit Badge Citizenship in Society – This is the first time this is being offered in our troop since it became require in July 2022. We will try to complete it in two sessions. Session 1 is at 6 PM SHARP this coming Tuesday, October 4. We will complete some requirements and then I will give instructions for the homework. We will review and complete the badge later in the month.
RECHARTER– 2023 dues: Although dues at the national level have steadily been increasing, due to our fundraising efforts, especially the can collection, we have been able to keep out troop dues the same for years. However, this year, we have decided we need to increase by just a bit to offset the costs. Dues this year will be $130. We will start collecting for that in October. Please let us know if your family needs assistance. WE WANT ALL SCOUTS TO BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE REGARDLESS OF FINANCIAL SITUATION.

ADULT LEADERSHIP – We need a new advancement coordinator in January. Brad Schwartz has done an excellent job organizing and tracking the merit badges and rank advancement, but he needs to step away. We would love someone to volunteer now so Brad can train you before he leaves in January. This is one of the jobs in the troop that needs pretty regular attendance at meetings Please let Christell or Bob know if you can serve the troop in this way!
